Scantec raise money for charity in The 3 Cities Cycling Challenge
A three-man cycling team from Scantec has completed The 3 Cities Cycling Challenge, raising money for Claire House, Marie Curie and Ronald McDonald House.
Scantec supported three of their staff as they cycled 300 miles through Europe.
The trio, made up of Paul Gibbens, Gareth Knight and Liam Cottrell, raised £5320 for their biking efforts and the money has been donated to the three charities.
The challenge started in London, which took the team rolling through English countryside, the plains of Holland and sleepy lanes of Belgium, visiting Amsterdam and Brussels along the way.
Scantec says the threesome had put serious training hours in before they embarked on the challenge, notching up a collective 459 hours in the saddle. The team managed to cycle 7,931 miles before the big ride - the same as travelling from Melbourne to Los Angeles - and climbed 235,846, equivalent to reaching the dizzying heights of Everest eight times.
Giant Liverpool, one of the sponsors for Team Scantec, also provided all three cyclists with a free bike service prior to the challenge.
The team is now planning its next fundraising venture and would like to thank everyone for their support.
